Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: http://www.kafkaesqueblog.com.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Your privacy is very important to us. At Kafkaesque, we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (Mainly the basics when you leave a comment and that is for anti-spam reasons. See the “Comments” section below for more details.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone unless it is to comply with the law, develop our articles/products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data and information shown in the comments form. We also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Kafkaesque does so primarily to assist and enable spam detection via the Akismet anti-spam program.

Kafkaesque only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described up above, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Kafkaesque may collect aggregated, impersonal statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Kafkaesque may monitor the most popular pages or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Kafkaesque may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Kafkaesque does not disclose personally-identifying information unless required by law.

Who we share your data with

By default, neither Kafkaesque nor WordPress shares any personal data with anyone.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service, mainly Akismet anti-spam.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Kafkaesque may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Kafkaesque’s sole discretion. Kafkaesque encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
